Tips for Planning The Perfect Summer Picnic - How to Plan A Picnic - ew & pt 
Sometimes I see things on television and think it’d be so awesome to recreate them in real life. Besides eating lunch on the steps of The Met a la Blair Waldorf, I’ve always wanted to have a fabulous picnic. I’ve fantasized about having fabulous picnics in the park that are filled with sunshine, aesthetically pleasing watermelon slices and the picturesque tossing of frisbees. Sadly, the sun doesn’t like me very much, I hate watermelon and I suck at throwing frisbees and am scared of getting hit by them. I’m also terrified of bugs and, you know, bugs live outside and tend to gather near food.

As I thought about it more, I realized all of my dislikes and fears don’t need to kill my picnic fantasy. All I need is a shady spot, different foods and some alternative forms of entertainment. I don’t have a solution to the fear of bugs situation, but I’ve come to terms with occasionally sprinting away from bees and butterflies throughout the duration of the picnic. Anyway. These tips for planning the perfect summer picnic will help you create your perfect day in the sunshine (or shade). Plus, if you master them, you can have picnics with friends, families or even significant others whenever you so choose.

How to Thrive During Finals Week - College Finals Guide // ew & pt

A lot of posts are all about surviving during finals week, but this soo isn’t Darwinism. Finals week is about thriving and being your best, most academic and learnèd self. I think it’s safe to say we’ve all had a finals week meltdown at some point whether it be throwing flashcards out of a window (and then picking them up because you actually REALLY needed them) or even full on crying under a table (even though you don’t know why you’re under a table). That’s okay. Really, I understand.

This finals week, though, you’re going to THRIVE. You’re going to be a beautiful, blossoming flower. You will not only ace your finals but also maintain your happiness and sanity levels as much as possible.
